in a world that seems to be limited to very few words . . . mainly
• name calling,
• spiteful accusations,
• degrading statements,
• thinly veiled racist attacks —
we MUST review what this “dumbing down” of so many citizens
means . . . what does it say about me???
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER . . . we must find the path to UNIFYING PEOPLE
• are we tired yet of the childish playground bullying techniques?
• are we ready to take a breath and refuse to fight, fight, fight???
• are we able to see that we are all people who basically want the same things:
a safe place to live, food to eat, and a way to provide the basic needs for ourselves and for others?
Unacceptable WORDS to use in discussions: hate, beat, kill, invaders, lock up, fake . . . and this is just the beginning of how to speak respectfully to one another and make progress toward being what we are . . . human beings AND we need each other to survive in this world, to identify and find the best solutions for challenges that are too big to handle by one person.
WORDS to use in discussions: please, explain, understand, opinion, my view, feel, need . . . and these could open doors to sharing perspectives that would help us all gain a better understanding of needs and potential answers of issues that impact us all.
A crust in comfort is better than a feast in fear. Aesop (c.620-560 BC)
